    Actually, it's not. It couldn't have been 2009, I guess my brain just short-circuited.

    I haven't decided yet, but I'll know in about a week. I'll let you know then .

    You might check out "Lightspeed Fine Art"
    http://www.lightspeedfineart.com/
    They have some beautiful artwork, including B5.

    Keeping in mind that I have no skill or knowledge of this sort of thing...can you get a good screenshot of the Station from the Lost Tales DVD, maybe? You can have that printed as a photograph, even a small poster at any Walgreens. Can anybody else chime in on this?

    [QUOTE=cornholio1980;80727]For JMS, I'll probably bring the "Lost Tales" Mini-Comic that I bought on ebay shortly after the Comic Con (was it 2009?).

    2007. Hard to believe, huh?

    BTW, this is not signature-related, but the link to the - still available - quote-shirts got me thinking: If I would like to make a custom B5-fanshirt just for myself, using a(nother) quote of the show, do you think I could/would get in trouble?

    I'll definitely get the mini-print of the great cast lithograph. Wish I could afford the bigger one, but the trip will be expensive enough; furthermore, it would be a pain in the neck to bring it back in a suitcase without ruining it completely.

    Way back when....during my very first 'big' B5 event in the UK in Blackpool, I got JMS to sign a large B5 Station blue-print. It was a free hand out insert that had come with an SF based modelling magazine.

    I really must frame it eventually!

    I thought those had vanished, thanks for reminding us

    Perhaps 'Sarthaz' might be interested in the quote by Zathras?

    No, I *wish* I could afford original art. I met the artist back when I was doing some fundraising for Rick Biggs' family after he died. He donated a wonderful painting of Rick for me to auction. I've loved that painting of the Station for years and when this con was announced, I asked him if I could get a print. I'll be collecting autographs for him on another of the same print, also.

    I love the people in fandom, I really do!

    Yeah, I love that one. Gotta wait a few more years before I can display something like that.

    Me: Ya think G'Kar's scary, kid? Check out Kosh.
    Daughter: Which one's Kosh?
    Me: We are all Kosh!

    Allow me to put my hand on the book and say, "I do!" I would love that. Thank you so much!
    Okay, it's yours. *Remind me* a week or so before the con. I've got a trip to C2E2 first so I can't put it my suitcase just yet.

    For JMS only or for multiple autographs, for me it'll be a lovely artist's rendering of the Station itself. There are some really nice ones available out there.

    For mutltiple autographs, there are smaller versions of the big Lightspeed Fine Art lithographs available: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Babylon-5-Ca...item482e1ab033

    I'll be interested in finding out what others are going to do.

    - and for JMS alone, a surprise prize I won in the Skywatch game (not telling because it might ruin the surprise for a future winner).

    Maybe some photo print(s) I have taken at last year's Fedcon (Walter Koenig and possibly one more)

    It was worth it

    More autographs would be nice, but it's hard to find something meaningful that would not feel "empty" without our absent friends.

    That's a brilliant idea! Where was I when that came out?

I got a pack of them and jsut ran across it again recently. If you want, I'll be happy to let you have one. We can call it a prize for the most creative way of getting registered. Here's what it looks like: http://jmsnews.com/forums/album.php?...&pictureid=122 You're welcome to say yes or no to the offer. It's 7" by 5" so it would look nice in a small frame, I think.
